I have often thought, as I hovered my mouse over the graphs on Google Reader’s trends page, that they should let you see the actual numeric value of each bar in a pop-up. Today I wound up using Greader in IE6 and – lo and behold – the numeric data are visible their in a pop-up. I check back over in Firefox and no dice.
It’s an unusual day when I get a reason to fire up IE. This discovery will lead to better stats analysis, rest assured. [Minor update: the pop-ups do work in Camino on my Mac.]
[If anyone knows how to access these pop-ups in Firefox, please let me know. And automated extraction would be, of course, the holy grail.]
